“Great Breakfast, Great Stories, Amazing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Pulling over for breakfast is usually done at a reputable fast food chain. But the Famous Ronnie's sex shop from now on will always be on the list if driving the majestic R62 in Sout Africa. Great service. We had a delicious breakfast. Friendly staff who are always willing to tell you a story or two. And we were lucky enough to actually meet Ronnie and hear how the place started out. i can now say i've been there, done that and literally got the T-shirt.

Note for the Ladies. Pack an extra pair of underwear and join the tradition of having them hung up above the bar.

“Must stop here for a visit! NOT a sex shop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

We were driving through the Karoo when we came across Ronnie's Sex Shop and we just had to stop in for a look.

There's a bar area with lots of bras and bikinis hanging up that people have donated over the years. It's a very quirky bar. We stopped for a beer and then we sat outside and had a burger and chips.

The staff/owners are very nice and they strike up a conversation with you.

It was a bit surreal coming across a place like this in the middle of the Karoo and nothing else around for miles. That added to the mystique.

Drop in if you happen to be passing, it's not far from Barrydale.

“A welcome oasis in a dry land”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Should you stop or not. Definite. Friendly service and unique for everyone. For some bizarre, but for the most real. A icon n this area and worth a visit.

“MAGICAL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Anyone that travels Route 62 and does not stop at Ronnies, is missing out on an amazing experience. Ronnie is such a character ~ Friendly, amusing and all-round down to earth. Relaxed atmosphere ... Nice food ... Fantastic t-shirts and goodies to buy and the pub is a "one of a kind" ... And don't forget your underwear to hang up and add to the collection.
